Watercolor, pen and ink Lillies





A scrumptious bit of color…


For 3 days I have drawn lilies. First in colored pencil, then in watercolor, then in pen and ink with a watercolor wash. Although not perfect, I think the final watercolor wash is more what I had in mind. I still need to add shadows, a background, and some darker greens. That will probably happen after Labor Day as my “troops are landing” in a few hours and life will be busier with company over the next few days.

Time to clean up now.

Wishing you a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!

Since I was little I liked to visualize and create things. Painting with watercolors is what makes me happy now. That, and spending time gardening and reading. I love long walks, biking, and the beach. Cape Cod is where I spend a lot of my leisure time.
